I desperately needed a new scanner but didn't have the time to research all the possibilities. I chose this scanner because it seemed priced right. The day it arrived I put it to use for the few small tasks that waited on my desk. But the big thrill came when I found the rack for scanning 16 (!) slides a a time. I couldn't believe how easy it was. I ran upstairs and got the box of slides that had been waiting for years and in just a few days of spare-time use, I had 1720 slides preserved for the next generation.

Easy to install and use. Vistadrivers available on the web at teh HP site. Works just like you'd think. I was amazed t how well 50-year-old slides scanned in. Being able to scan 16 at a time give this scanner a huge advantage over it's less expensive cousins. For under $200, can't beat it.

Good looking, great features, but SLOOOOOW

by CompGeek9000 on 9/25/2007

I replaced an old HP 5100 scanner with this one because I needed film negative scanning capability and higher resolution. Anything higher resolution than 200 dpi is painfully slow. This is ok for home use but I could not use it in a professional graphics office because of the speed. I like the sleek styling and the features. Read More
